Iran supplying weapons to Yemen's Huthi rebels: France FM

Posted March 30, 2018

"What we're hoping this does is make plausible deniability not very plausible", said Tim Michetti, head of regional operations for Conflict Armament Research. On Sunday, Houthi rebels fired a barrage of seven ballistic missiles at the kingdom, killing one person and wounding two.

In a joint statement, Britain's Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt urged Iran to change course.

Iran has said it supports the Houthis' cause in Yemen but has repeatedly denied arming them, despite claims by the United States and Saudi Arabia of evidence of weapon shipments, AFP reported.

"Iran has enabled the conflict in Yemen to spill into neighboring countries and undermines global efforts to resolve the conflict, exacerbating the suffering of the Yemeni people".

The Houthis expelled pro-government forces from the capital Sanaa in September 2014 and went on to seize swathes of the impoverished Arabian Peninsula country.

Since March 26, 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

"Instead of sending out false signals and shirking its responsibility for the imposed war on the defenseless and oppressed people of Yemen, Britain had better end its opportunist approach in this indiscriminate war immediately", the spokesperson said.

France on Thursday accused Iran of supplying weapons to Huthi rebels fighting a Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.

While Iran has backed Shia Houthi rebels, Britain has continued to supply arms to Saudi Arabia, drawing strong and sustained criticism from rights groups due to alleged war crimes committed by the Saudi-led military coalition.
